Leftover Turkey-mushroom-noodle Casserole

A 1950 newspaper clipping I found in my great great aunt Jessie's collection. Very basic and easy method of using up that leftover turkey. Prep time includes cooking the noodles but not the turkey!

My DH is still talking about this casserole! It was nice to fix something that didn't require a canned soup. I had no sherry wine so added 2 teaspoons of chicken bullion. Also added celery and minced red pepper instead of pimento, didn't have any in the pantry. I made it up in the morning and let the flavors blend until cook time in the evening. Thanks, will be making this one again.

Great simple casserole. I love the vintage recipes that don't call for a can of soup. I didn't have any kitchen bouquet,so I just browned the flour a bit before adding the liquids. This was a great way to use up those turkey leftovers. My son ate almost the whole thing himself, it was supposed to serve 4-6 but I guess that was in the 1950's when people weren't such piggies. :)
